Soybean futures posted 8 to 9 cent gains in most nearby contracts on Friday, with March 0.71% higher this week. Soymeal futures were up $2.90/ton, with soy oil 24 points higher. Several Trade War rumors helped to support the market later in the week. We regard these as trial balloons for the next negotiating round at the end of the month. The markets will re-open on Monday evening for the normal overnight trade.
